created for Liam Byrne (viola da gamba) and Émilie Girard-Charest (cello)
Cousins highlights the contested lineage and relationship of the viola da gamba and the cello. The piece was created using the same orally transmitted instructions for both soloists. Each realization is unique despite carrying the same DNA.
